In this post I’m sharing how to make delicious Bacon Egg and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches. It’s a delicious breakfast on the go!
Y’all, I love a delicious fluffy and buttery croissant with cheesy eggs and bacon. There is no need to search for “bacon egg and cheese croissant sandwiches near me” when you can make the freshest and most delicious one right in your own kitchen.
I believe that some of the tasty meals that we enjoy on the go are sometimes forgotten about when it comes to making them ourselves. There is nothing better than using the freshest ingredients that you love to make your own.
Now I’m fine calling this a homemade recipe but I’ll be straight up in telling you that after I’ve seen dozens of videos for how to make croissants that I will never ever be doing that and plan to keep on buying them from the bakery.
Plus those buttery bakery croissants are delicious and perfect for these breakfast sammies. This might be the easy way but I’m a fan of keeping it simple.
Bacon Egg and Cheese Croissant
Why you’ll love this recipe? Baked bacon, egg and cheese croissant breakfast sandwiches are super easy to make and they’re great on the go. Kids love them too!
If you don’t have bacon on hand (add that to your shopping list) then just use whatever you have on hand like breakfast sausage, Canadian bacon, ham or whatever you like.
Every single bite of these sandwiches is heavenly! It is kind of a splurge so I’m glad that only six of those big croissants come in a package. This is a breakfast we only enjoy occasionally. I like to switch things up for our breakfast meals so we’re not feeling like we eat the same thing over and over too often.
What do I need to make Bacon, Egg and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches?
- Bakery Croissants – they’re big and perfectly delicious and work well for this meal. I don’t recommend the refrigerated bake yourself version (you know which ones I’m talking about). It’s just not the same.
- Bacon – because bacon is delicious!
- Eggs – local farm fresh if you can get them. Egg are a nutrition powerhouse and a perfect way to start the day.
- Cheese – the delicious cheese of your choice adds another dimension of wonderful flavor to this sandwich.
When I make the fluffy scrambled eggs for this recipe I will sometimes add freshly grated cheddar into the eggs as they cook and other times I use a slice of cheese on the sandwich. Either way is delicious and you can use whatever type of cheese that you love.
Delicious cheese options for this breakfast sandwich would be cheddar, American, pepper Jack or provolone.
Although I keep the sandwiches to just the basic ingredients, you could certainly add additional toppings if you prefer them (like lettuce and tomato).
First things first, we gotta cook the bacon. Since it is just a few slices I chose to just go ahead and fry them in a skillet then I’ll have some of that flavorful bacon grease to scramble the eggs.
If you’re making a larger batch of bacon and feeding more than just two as I am then you could cook the bacon in the oven.
I have gone back and forth over the years on bacon, sometimes choosing the thick sliced, but these days we seem to like the regular ole bacon that cooks up thin and really crispy.

How do I make a real good breakfast sandwich?
Next, take a couple of those big beautiful croissants and slice them in half and place them on a lined baking sheet. Just look at how beautiful and flaky they are!
Bacon, we want Bacon!
Go ahead and place a slice of your cheese of choice on the bottom half of each croissant then add a few slices of bacon. I think these sandwiches could’ve used another slice or two. I’ll have to do better next time!
Let’s be honest here friends, more bacon is never a bad thing in my book.
Easy Breakfast on the Go
It’s time for the fluffy scrambled eggs! I love scrambled eggs. I have a couple of tips when it comes to scrambling eggs that I’d like to share.
- A non-stick skillet or a well seasoned cast iron skillet works best for cooking eggs.
- Fresh eggs are always best.
- Beat the eggs really well with a splash of heavy cream.
- Hold off on seasoning the eggs until they are finished cooking. This will keep the salt from drying out the eggs.
- Scramble eggs over medium low heat while pushing the curds toward the center gently as they cook. Continue to cook until they are done to your likeness.
Place a heaping amount of your perfectly cooked eggs on top of the bacon and cheese the place the top of the croissant on and pop them into the oven to bake until the cheese is melty.
Warm croissants are amazing and you’ll love how taking a couple of minutes to toast the sandwiches. The oven baking really adds to how special they are.
If you prefer a fried egg over scrambled then by all means cook the eggs however you like them best. This is your sandwich after all and you know what you will enjoy the most.
